If you think the early days of American politics were dull, this sharp-witted musical comedy will set you straight. Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson reimagines and reinvents the life of America’s original political maverick, President Andrew Jackson. Set to an infectious rock score, this mashup of historical fact and anarchic theatricality tells the story of the populist pioneer of humble stock – otherwise known as “Old Hickory” – who invented the Democratic Party, moved the Native Americans west, rose to the highest office in the land and, in this telling, plays a smokin’ guitar and sings a great arena rock ballad. Alex Timbers’ clever book for the Broadway show was nominated for a Tony. See this local production hit the stage of Plano’s Art Centre Theatre.
